World Day of Social Justice (Day 2)

#DYK that today is the #WorldDayofSocialJustice?

#InstituteforLabourRights works towards removal of barriers that people face at the workplaces due to their #gender#race#caste#religion#age#ethnicity or #disability#Socialjustice is the foundation for lasting peace, as enunciated in the Declaration of Philadelphia 1944. #Socialjustice also finds a mention in preamble to the #ConstitutionofPakistan1973.

Considering the fragile situation in various parts of the country, including erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (#FATA) and #Balochistan, Government of Pakistan must work towards #jobcreation, as promised in the #PTI100dayplan, and provide access to better quality jobs. Gainfully employed communities are more cohesive and can avoid surge of violent conflicts and help address the post-conflict situations.

If You Want Peace & Development, Work for Social Justice

#LabourRights are #HumanRights.

Domestic Work and Valentines Day

This #ValentinesDay#InstituteforLabourRights urges you to demonstrate a greater love: the love for #socialjustice. While the day has been generally reserved for romance and roses, we request your support in helping us lobby for a framework legislation on #domesticwork in #Pakistan.

Did you know that there are more than 10 million #domesticworkers in Pakistan, toiling in our homes day and night without any protection of labour laws?

Quite unfortunately, it means there are instances of child domestic labour, bonded labour, slavery, and inhuman treatment for millions since our legislation does not recognise them as workers. Let’s not forget the most recent case of #Uzma, a #domesticworker who was killed in Lahore by her employers for merely taking a morsel of food without permission!

Today, we ask you to express your love not only to your #Valentine, but also to workers supporting our campaign for a framework legislation by the federal government on the issue of #domesticworkers, to be followed as a minimum standard by the provinces. The federal legislation would set the minimum age for live-in domestic workers as 18 years and grant employment rights to domestic workers as are applicable to other formal sector workers.

By spreading this message, please demonstrate your love for #socialjustice!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
